my second take from boat "stefanie" on lake hallstatt for OMOE 2015 edited as a BW - lucky shot indeed ;)
The Hallstätter See is a lake in the Upper Austrian share of the Salzkammergut and is situated north of the Dachstein mountain range. To the east of the Hallstätter See, you will find the Sarstein, a mountain. The Hallstätter See is famous in Austria and beyond; in fact, alongside with the Mondsee and the Wolfgangsee, it is probably the one Salzkammergut that receives the most international attention in the form of foreign tourists. There town of Hallstatt is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site and famous for its remoteness, its salt mines, Celtic heritage and the Neolithic culture that was named after the town. Hallstatt can be found at the western shore of the lake.
The Hallstätter See is 5.9 kilometres long, 2.3 kilometres wide and more than 100 metres deep. Its water level can be managed via a little dam. Tourists usually do a combination of sightseeing in Hallstatt and either a cruise or a trip with the Zillen or Platten, long boats which are essentially the same as English punts.
